IN COURT: Man pleads guilty in meth tractor case

August 20, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY— A man accused of selling methamphetamine from his tractor admitted his guilt in Whitley County Circuit Court Monday.

Gerald Michel, 20, of South Whitley, was arrested in November of 2012. He was charged with two counts of dealing in methamphetamine and two counts of possession of methamphetamine.

Monday, he pleaded guilty to one count of dealing methamphetamine. As part of a plea agreement, the remaining charges against Michel will be dismissed.

According to case reports, Michel allegedly sold meth to two informants who met him in a field near South Whitley. Michel picked the informants up on his tractor, made a full field pass and dealt the meth to them on each occasion.

These buys occurred in the spring of 2012 at a field near Ind. 5. Michel was given $100 for one gram of methamphetamine.
